I managed to have this resolved at long last. Apparently the telkom slaes team gave me a 4mb username, although technically I ought to be on a 10Mb username. a diagnosis was done on the line and it is confirmed that the line is capable of traversing 20Mb. Its a blend of copper and fibre.

So THAT is what they call that bull**bleep** new supposed "magic tool" to sync lines at faster speeds. I am going to take a wild guess and assume they enabled it on my line from the 2nd or 3rd of Jan this year, because that's when I started noticing this **bleep**ty lag. I'll give the tech guys a call on 10210 (?) and ask them to disable it for my account.
